Ethiopian lamb ribs @ Lalibela Restaurant

So, we’re hanging out at Lalibela, this funky Ethiopian joint at Bloor and Ossington. Now, I’ve been to other Ethiopian joints before, but this one was named best in the city, and they’ve definitely got the most massive menu — with 69 dishes, not counting salad and desserts!!!

Now, I’ve done Ethiopian beef before, and I even went with a combo platter, but when I saw six different lamb dishes to choose from, I knew I had to pick one. So I went with the goden tibs, a mixture of cubed lamb and lamb ribs:

Now, this dish actually comes to the table fajita-style on a sizzling skillet, but then they dump it all out on the injera bread for you. The meat itself isn’t spicy, but when you get a bite of the raw jalapeno, that’ll poke a hole in yer taste buds, bro! And while I ate the bony bits with my bare mitts, I did go all Ethiopian style with the injera on the rest — just grip it and rip it, Bro Daly!!!
